"Never again will her life be free of travail and disappointment in her three blind mice."

Three Blind Mice is a children's nursery rhyme from around 1805. Some scholars believe that the song is about Queen Mary I of England blinding then executing three protestant bishops.

 

Three blind mice. Three blind mice. See how they run. See how they run. They all ran after the farmer's wife Who cut off their tails with a carving knife. Did you ever see such a thing in your life As three blind mice?
